A couple of random updates...

I've been falling behind on my blog updates and I'm going to try to catch up in one post -

We took Reed to Hardware Ranch last month and he loved it. There were over 500 elk in the field when we went and they said the number gets bigger each day.

Reed got a "Big Boy Bed" and he loved it for about a week and now he prefers to sleep on the floor right in front of the door. Brett and I have no clue why he does this. We wait until he falls asleep and then we carry him back to bed. If he ever wakes up during the night he lays down on the floor again. If anyone has any suggestions for us we could use help figuring out our son.

So if any of you know my husband, you have probably learned that Valentine's Day is his LEAST favorite holiday. In fact, he says he hates it. His opinion is that Valentine's Day is a holiday for bad husbands to make up for their faults by purchasing gifts for their wives. He informs me that he doesn't need a holiday to show his love for me. So I have come to expect nothing from Brett on Valentine's Day. As for me, I am still a fan of this holiday. Luckily I have 28 fourth graders that show their love for me with Sponge Bob and High School Musical Valentine cards and candy. I knew I picked teaching for a reason. Brett is a big archery hunter so I suprised him with a half dozen "arrows" instead of roses. He was pretty excited and I was glad I could make him smile on that dreadful day of his.

This past Saturday we decided Reed needed a day out on the town so we took him to the Magic Treehouse in Ogden and then out to dinner. He was in heaven and it was fun to see him drag both of us around to check everything out. There was a lot for him to look at and he didn't want to leave.
